This area is the playground of an array of popular species, including Chinook Salmon, Halibut, Lingcod, and even Albacore Tuna if you head to the offshore waters. You could also encounter Leopard Sharks and Rays, but know that when you get one of those on your line, you need to bring your A-game!

Whether you’re in the mood to go on a Chinook hunt or you’d rather spend some time bottom fishing for “chicken” Halibut, there’ll be a guide to take you out. Take your pick between half day and full day trips, depending on how much time you have and how many fish you’d like to catch. Leave everything else in the hands of your trusty captain.
 
Fort Baker is one of the most productive fishing spots in Sausalito. When you book a trip with a Sausalito fishing charter, you’ll probably meet them here. Then, your fishing escapades can begin!

January
Winter fishing in California is excellent, especially if you love bottom fishing. The Flounder bite is hot, and you can also find some top-notch Halibut out there. White Sturgeon are also very active.
February
The fishing action in February is very similar to January, which means good angling opportunities and more fish out there than you could ever catch. Trophy-sized Halibut and Flounder roam the bay’s bottom for food and they make for excellent table fare as well.
March
March brings more Striped Bass opportunities, which is why you’ll see a lot of passionate Bass anglers out there. Hit the water to catch some delicious Flounder or spend your day battling Sharks.
April
The season for Rockfish and Lingcod is officially open, and bottom fishing lovers couldn’t be more thrilled! Add to that superb Halibut action and Shark fishing that doesn’t stop and you’ve got an exciting day on the water all planned out.
May
It’s Chinook time! The King Salmon season is open, so how about you hop aboard for some world-class fishing? Bottom fishing is still excellent, and Striped Bass are biting left and right.
June
The first month of summer also happens to be one of the best fishing months in Sausalito. Rockfish, Lingcod, and Halibut are thriving, and you can find more and more Albacore Tuna in the offshore waters.
July
Chinook expedition? Tuna hunt? Bottom fishing extravaganza? Whatever you’re in the mood for in July, you got it. Chinook fishing is at its peak, and the same goes for Albacore Tuna, the strong speedsters of the deep.
August
Tuna love warm waters, so this is the month they’ll be passing through the area in impressive numbers. Trophy Salmon hunters will have a blast as well, especially if they book a Salmon-bottom fishing combo trip.
September
Vacation days are over, so there may be fewer anglers on the water, but the fish are still here and they’re still hungry. You’ll get your adrenaline rush from going after Tuna, and delicious dinner from fresh Chinook fillets.
October
It’s getting slightly colder on the water and the weather might be a bit unpredictable. That doesn’t stop avid anglers from pursuing everything from Salmon and Rockfish to Albacore Tuna.
November
The Chinook season is closed, but there are plenty more fish in the sea. Lingcod are very hungry, as are Rockfish and Halibut, so fall bottom fishing is fantastic.
December
It’s the holiday season for the whole country – and for passionate bottom fishing anglers. Guides and their clients are making the most of every good-fishing day by targeting Rockfish, Flounder, Lingcod, and Halibut.

We had a great time. The ocean was a bit choppy at times but Captain Phil was comfortable the whole time. Even though conditions weren’t optimal we still managed to pull in two King Salmon within the first 2hours. Would love to go again.

We hit some unexpected windy conditions with Captain Phil. He took good care of us, and while we didn’t find the fish we were hoping for, we did have a good time and have some good stories to tell. Definitely recommend!

What a time! Phil is a great captain even when my brother and I were in our deepest darkest hole of sea sickness. And he’s one hell of a fishing guide. Was able to get us our limit when no one else was getting decent hits. Looking forward to it again thanks Phil!

This was such a wonderful trip for my husband and I. We caught multiple halibut, a bat ray and a striped bass. Our guide was very knowledgeable and great company as well. He even took it upon himself to take us to a very well known restaurant off the water for my husband and I to have a romantic lunch. Very nice guy! Will definitely recommend him and look forward to fishing with him again.

We had a great trip on the Reel Time - 5 big Salmon for 3 fishermen (would have been a limit day for all 3 of us if we hadn’t lost a few others) - on a day when other boats were not catching. Great job putting us onto the fish, fast, clean comfortable boat and an awesome day! Thanks Phil!

Great trip! Missed our limit by 1 but did much better than the party boats. When the bite slowed Capt Phil “knew a place”. We were the only boat there and had 2 more on deck in less than 15 minutes. Definitely would book again.

We had the best day of fishing with Captain Phil!! He was fantastic at helping my teenage boys learn how to land salmon and was also a fun and interesting host. He even set us up with a great restaurant in San Francisco that cooked our catch for us the evening of our trip. Best meal we had during our vacation—thank you Phil!!!
